I have received a DDP image with an included HOFA DDP Player as a zip file. How can I use it?GPogatzki
You can find a short instruction video here:
It is important that the player is always opened directly from the “Player” subfolder inside the DDP image. The file “HOFA_DDP_PLAYER_INFO” also needs to be present there.
You can download a detailed manual here.
Notice about macOS 10.12 (Sierra):
Unfortunately Apple has introduced a new security mechanism with macOS Sierra which adds new restrictions for Apps that were downloaded from the internet inside a zip file. Because of that, older versions of DDP Player may not be able to open the corresponding DDP image automatically.
If there are problems with these older versions, please update to the version 1.0.17 or higher of DDP Player Maker and create the player for that image again!
There are some workarounds for older versions of the player:
In case the DDP Player shows the instruction Please drop the file “HOFA_DDP_PLAYER_INFO” here to open your DDP image, all you have to do is drag the file “HOFA_DDP_PLAYER_INFO” which is also located in the “Player” subfolder onto the DDP Player. Alternatively you can also open it from the DDP Player’s File menu.
In other cases there may be a message to activate a license or to run in demo mode. If this happens, please proceed as follows:
Use the Finder to move “HOFA DDP Player Mac OS-X.app” to the desktop and then move it back to the “Player” folder inside the DDP image where it came from. Moving the file around will deactivate the restrictions for that app, so afterwards you can open the DDP Player with the image as intended.
